Children's Crab Derby

Old Yacht Basin
Southport, NC

August 2020 - Cancelled  Have you ever seen a crab race? Sounds even better than a frog race, doesn't it? You can find out on the Saturday before Labor Day. Registration begins at 8:30 AM and the derby begins at 9 Am. Bring your child (up to age 14), a small collapsible crab trap, string, net and bait (chicken legs suggested) and hope the tide is at its best for good crabbing! (But don't worry, a local commercial crabber usually stocks the yacht basin with some extras.) Prizes are given for the biggest crab and the most crabs caught in each age category.
